When not busy shooting scenes for a movie or a series, “Criminal Minds” star Thomas Gibson spends quality time with his three children.

The actor shares three children with his former wife Christine – sons James Parker and Travis Carter; and daughter Agatha Marie.

“We kept it private because divorce is hard enough on kids without having to deal with it publicly."

In an interview with Shave Magazine, Gibson shared moments when his children visited him on the set of “Criminal Minds.”

“Dayne is always very gracious. He’s the head of our make-up department and he’s very gracious to share the things that the kids really want which are bullet holes and blood,” he said.

Asked how he feels about having his children around on the set, he said, “Certainly more of a treat. That’s true. I also have to be careful, though, about which day they come because some days are a little too bloody and I don’t necessarily think that would be a good idea. So, we choose a day that’s a little bit more neutral for them to come visit.”

A FAILED MARRIAGE

Gibson and Christine separated in 2011. He filed for divorce in 2014 and it was finalized in February 2018. Their separation had been kept out of public knowledge.

“We spent a year and a half in mediation,” Gibson recalled. “We kept it private because divorce is hard enough on kids without having to deal with it publicly. Christine and I switch off staying with our kids at home in San Antonio. We did the best we could and continue to do the best we can as parents.”

Gibson played Aaron Hotchner in the CBS television series, “Criminal Minds,” from 2005 to 2016. Aside from “Criminal Minds,” he is also known for portraying Daniel Nyland in the CBS television series “Chicago Hope,” and Greg Montgomery in the ABC television series, “Dharma & Greg.”

A HAPPIER MARRIAGE FOR ANOTHER "CRIMINAL MINDS" STAR

Joe Mantegna, another “Criminal Minds” star, has a happier love story, having been married to his wife for 43 years now.

Mantegna has been married for well over four decades to actress Arlene Vrhel – a rare feat considering the rate of divorce battles in Hollywood.

Strengthening their marriage are their two daughters, one of whom has autism. The Mantegna family exhibit a tight bond that keeps them going on strong despite major hurdles like their older daughter's autism.
